On February 28, the draft agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Finland on the implementation of the project "Finnish Support for the Reform of the Ukrainian School" was approved at the meeting of the Cabinet, according to the press service of Ukraine’s Education Ministry.
"The project envisaged by the Agreement will have an estimated cost of 6 million euros, it is designed for 4 years," the report said.
These funds will be used to improve the qualification of Ukrainian teachers. It is noted that teachers need "new tools for communication and education of modern children."
After the Minister of Education signs the document, it must also be ratified by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier Finland supports the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas and urges to not narrow the list of the countries that can help Ukraine. Jussi Niinisto, the Defense Minister of Finland said this.
'When it comes to a number of troops, it is too early to say anything. But Finland, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, and Ireland cannot put up all the troops needed for this kind of operation. We need more countries. But the deal needs the approval of both Ukraine and Russia', he noted.
According to him, there is a necessity for the preservation of the sanctions against Russia, the country-aggressor.
